    Hey everyone! I wanted to post this while the traffic on here is still heavy so we can hopefully get a participant for every team. Last year was a lot of fun but we started it a little too late so we didn't have enough time to do free agency before the real free agency started and it kind of fizzled out. This year I'm going to stay on top of it so we can actually finish it.

    Here are the details from last year:

    Everyone playing would be assigned a team (or two if we only have 15 teams) and you'd be the GM of your team with complete control over any transactions. We'd then set a date for our fake NBA Draft. Before and during the draft you would be allowed to make as many trades as you want as long as they work under the CBA. You take on your team's exact roster, draft picks, etc. If it goes well we could even find a way to do a fake free agency.

    As long as you are active and participate in it this type of thing is a lot of fun. It doesn't really matter how well you do as long as you are trying and don't just vanish so we have dormant teams. At the end we can compare rosters and see how everyone did and even revisit it at different points of the season or run 2K simulations to see what teams would win.

    If you want to try it all you have to do is respond and put your top 3 choices in teams and I will decide who gets what team. For those that want the Blazers I will have a drawing/contest to see who gets them. If we don't get enough people I'm thinking about hitting up other forums of the leftover teams and getting people to join the site to participate.

    I'm going to tag those that played last year, hopefully you all want to play again.

    @JDC (you should really do it this year, it's very helpful for locking in your draft previews)

    Here's a link to last year's thread if you want to get a feel of how it works.

    It would be cool to see a bunch of other regulars try it this year.

    I'm guessing the Pelicans are going to be one of the more popular choices.

    I suggest you get the rules all figured out before as I think part of the problem and confusion last year was based on a lack of concrete rules. Too much ambiguity especially in free agency. To be honest I would suggest to limit it to a mock draft with participants as after that I think it will fizz out again. Just some suggestions. I would be interested in just a mock draft.

    I'm up for it.
    Obviously, I'd like the Blazers!
    Teams that I think would be interesting to be in charge of.
    The New York Knicks, Sacremento Kings, Clippers, and Detroit.


    I know I said more than 3 teams, just throwing out a few more just in case that helps you with the decision making the process.

    I had a plan in place last year for free agency. Like I said we started it too late and people weren't around at the end to finish it. The rules for free agency are pretty solid. I had three people that weren't participating and they each had a vote after hearing team's pitches what team they would go to. I had a fourth person to break the tie if they all voted differently.

    I would love for you to play but the first time you start something in this thread you're gone.

    I would be up for doing something like a 2 phased off-season. We do a Mock-Draft (We Keep those picks). Then in Mid-July, we do our own "Mock Summer" after FA's sign (but with the caveat of we can trade them w/o waiting 6 months). That way we get our picks, but also we don't have to "decide" who gets what FA. HJ Don't take this as me trying to dictate the rules, I think you should know by now I'm good with whatever you come up with. I'll fall in line.

    Don't threaten me as you don't own this forum. You are not an innocent bystander.

    I am definitely not going to allow people to sign free agents and then trade them right away. I like to stick to the actual CBA rules and it already gets crazy enough with all the trades.

    As for waiting, it always fizzles out that way. What I would be down for is keeping it going throughout the next season though. That way you could still make trades and stuff up until the real trade deadline.

    It's not a threat. This is my game. You came in to the game and ruined the draft last year.

    If you want to play nice then I'm happy to have you play. If you're going to be like this move on and please don't come back into this thread.

    Fuck it. I'll play and be an active participant. Give me the spot cup would have had.....

    EDIT: IF, everyone understands I'm outta green ink, and if one of my posts sounds like an attack...... It isn't.

    Bull shit. I didn't ruin your fucking little messed up game as it was made to be ruined by YOUR lack of rules published and participation fading away after the draft which was easily predictable.. Fuck it. You can play your little game. I ain't interested. Now you have little dougie in salem trying to start shit with me. Is he going to be banned from your game?

    Whoa.. I see shit got serious. I was only messing around form my end. Id like to play, but I'm an ignorant rookie and honestly not sure if I will have the time and cause issues because of that.

    Sounds like a ton of fun though.
